Thompson & Morgan Herb Basil Crimson KingAsk a Question
New British breeding for a 100% all purple leaved type with increased vigour and uniformity, and traditional cupped Genovese shaped leaves. An excellent ornamental edible, ideal grown on the windowsill, or in containers or baskets outdoors in the summer.
Sow seed on the surface of good, free-draining seed compost. Cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 14-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Keep compost barely moist until seedlings emerge to avoid stem rots.
Transplant when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for a few days before planting out after risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart, or into containers.
